DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour, raising powders and salt.
  • Rub in the butter and lard/vegetable fat, and then mix in the fruit.
  • Add enough milk to make a firm dough. Roll out, and then cut into rounds of about 3" or 6cm in diameter.
  • Grease the heated griddle (or a heavy frying pan or skillet) with lard or dripping thoroughly. Put on the cakes and turn them when the underneath is a nice mottled brown. Keep the singin' hinnies warm in the oven until they are all cooked.
  • Cut in half and put a big knob of butter in the middle. Serve immediately.
